• Student envisions next generation Lamborghini Murcielago

The Lamborghini Murcielago has recently taken a step down in order to make room for the new Aventador LP700-4 that debuted at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, but what would a next generation Murcielago look like if given the chance to shine? IAAD student, Salvatore Simonetti, got to work to give us all an idea of his vision for hat would be the next generation LamborghiniMurcielago.

His concept study is called Lamborghini Murciélago "Next Generation" and is inspired by the past models of the company, mainly the legendary Diablo. The concept’s shape is similar to that of a jet-plane and combines the extreme aggressiveness of the Diablo with an extensive use of carbon fiber and kevlar. The shape of the concept gives off the Lamborghini-esque nature of the vehicle while the Supertrofeo race graphics and the SV letters of the Murcielago Super Veloce add a bit more edge to the already existing style.

This concept study is pretty good in theory, but our biggest problem with it is that we don’t have a full front view of the car. And the graphics are mediocre at best. What’s up with that, Salvatore?

We couldn’t admit how nice is Lamborghini Murcielago as a production. Just right before the debut date, its already sold-out! And I think its successor the Aventador has a lot of pressure about this scenario. However, for sure the ’s team creative will surely give all their best for the Aventador succeed too.

As a student, i don’t think that he would come up with his own design and concept. Most probably its a copied or enhance version and i don’t think that it’s appropriate to call it the "next generation". Lamborghini should reserve that name for their future "professional" work.

Yup, it does need a few more improvements to make it look more distinct. But this one is actually slowly looking great to me.

Well, that definitely looks like one great looking Murcielago concept. Too bad that it is likely that we won’t be seeing much of the car anytime soon.

It seems like Lamborghini has a lot of plans for their future production. But i think they need to focus on their house designs just like in Bertone. Who is Salvatore Simonetti anyway?

I must admit that this one actually looks cool. But it doesn’t really feel next gen to me. Looks more like one of those souped up Murcielagos that you see in car shows.
